Call for Registration: Helsinki Workshop on Routines and Practices


A workshop organized by Kathrin Sele, Waldemar Kremser, Laura Mitzscherling and Lauri Paavola

We are excited to announce the Helsinki Workshop on Routines and Practices at Aalto University School of Business in Helsinki, FI on May 22-24, 2019. The workshop is part of the Routines.Research.Community and is generously sponsored by the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies and Aalto University.

Leading up to the 20th anniversary of routine dynamics research, the purpose of this workshop is to bring together PhD students and early career academics with senior scholars to discuss current and future topics in research on organizational routines and social practices. Grounded in a practice perspective and with a methodological focus on action patterns this growing body of research has important implications for our understanding of fundamental concepts of organization and management studies, such as change, strategy, interdependence, or temporality. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss and further develop new ideas in an open and collaborative setting. Further, the workshop will focus on methodological challenges and provides ground for creating a network for exchange and collaboration.

We have an exciting program and are delighted that several top scholars (Martha Feldman, Brian Pentland, Kristina Lauche, Davide Nicolini, Jörg Sydöw, and Eero Vaara) will join us. The workshop will feature an entire day dedicated to novel ideas and projects, complemented with a day focusing on methods to study routines and practices from several perspectives.

To ensure the best experience, the number of participants is restricted to 40. Workshop participation is free. PhD and early career participants can apply for funding (max. 300 Euro/person) of their travel and accommodation costs. Scholars interested in participating are invited to apply through e-mail by March 15, 2019 (, briefly outlining their interest and how their research relates to the workshop focus. Please indicate in your application whether you need funding to participate. Acceptance decisions for the workshop will be announced end of March.

We look forward to seeing you all at Aalto University.

Kathrin Sele, Waldemar Kremser, Laura Mitzscherling and Lauri Paavola
